I worked with Tim at National Distrbuting.
I moved from Atlanta approximately four years ago and didn’t know of his illness.
He had the best personality and always had a smile on his face. He enjoyed Georgia football and we discussed games all the time. He gave me a Georgia napkin holder that I have kept in the RV all these years. He was a wonderful friend and he will be missed.

Tim and I were Sales Teammates at National Distributing Company. We had neighboring territories and would sometimes meet at Arbor Springs Golf Course after work where he had worked weekends as a Marshall. I always looked forward to the times we were able to go and enjoyed getting to know Tim outside of work. Tim went on to work for Barefoot Wines and one day he requested that we ride together on a Sales day. I was quickly impressed with Tim’s selling style. He was the same Salesman as he was a person, very honest and sincere. His easy going and straight forward demeanor made it impossible not to like and trust him. It gave me a heavy heart to see Tim struggle with his affliction. I am saddened to see him go, but I worry very little about where he will be. I can only hope they have Golf in Heaven and I can play again with my friend someday. You will be missed! - Sean Gibbs
